Yes, algebra is for early elementary-age kids when using powerful picture-based problems and innovative methods! Your child will tackle fun pattern-based thinking challenges, learn about variables, put their knowledge of addition and subtraction to use creatively, and even solve algebraic equations in picture and numerical format using the Hands-On Equations Learning System. Any child who can do basic addition and subtraction can succeed in this class. In fact, it often helps kids deepen...
Students will explore pattern-based thinking, apply mental math to check solutions, and, yes, solve "real" algebra equations in picture and numerical format.
I am a certified PK-6 Virginia teacher with additional certifications and specialization in Gifted and Talented Advanced Academics and the inquiry-based International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). I have over 15 years of experience teaching for schools, homeschool groups, and families around the world. I believe all children have an inherent love for learning, and, because I love math and believe math literacy is an essential skill that all children can learn to the highest levels, I have specialized in math and STEAM-related education.
No materials are required, but your child may like to have the following if they want to get hands-on with us: 1. Paper/pencil (or a whiteboard and marker) 2. 6-8 small objects of the same color and size (e.g. pawns from a chess game, unifix cubes, or mini-marshmallows... if they won't eat them!) 3. Dice: 2 regular dice and 2 10-sided dice (Alternatively, tiles with the numbers 1-10 or simply small squares of paper each labeled with one number from 1-10 would also suffice.)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Hands-On Equations Learning System visual aids, techniques, and sample problems.
